¡Revolucion! Cuban Poster Art by Lincoln Cushing. Author, archivist, historian, librarian #LincolnCushing will be at the MSB (33 Arroyo Dr.) on Tue. Jan. 6th at 6PM to lecture on The History of Kaiser Permenente in #SSF. Learn about how industrialist Henry J. Kaiser paired up with physician Sidney Garfield in 1945 to build a system of health care and hospitals that now serves as a model for the nation.
This presentation will explore the evolution from early service to workers in the Mojave Desert, the Grand Coulee Dam, seven World War II shipyards, and the Fontana steel mill, to post-war care for union members and their families that resulted in massive California expansion – including facilities in South San Francisco.
